Pioneer Naturals Buffalo Dry Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 30 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Peas and Chickpeas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavors and Dried Tomato Pomace.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this Pioneer Naturals recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
